for a while now i havent been able to read or burn any dvds with my drive. i started having this problem after playing with the firmware.
I have tried most of the firmwares on the codeguys site that are compatible with my drive but still have the same prob. Current firmware in drive is CG5M
if i try and flash a stock firmware into my drive i keep getting the orange light flashing and drive doesnt work. if i patch the firmware with omnipatcher with the fix dead drive blink i can burn/read cdr perfectly but cant read/burn dvds at all. i have tried different dvd brands and typres (+ and - r) but still have the same problem. ive been reading around the forums for the last few hours and i think the problem could be with the checksum. If i click on repair checksum in the eprom utility i get an error “sorry the eprom checksum cant be repaired with this utility, contact the codeguys”
Any help would be greatly appricated guys
